Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training (SNAP E&T)
SNAP E&T helps SNAP recipients achieve their self-sufficiency goal by providing opportunities for work experience, education and job retention training activities. One-on-one support is provided through case management to assist with obstacles which prevent individuals from becoming gainfully employed. This program assists clients who are referred to the program by the Office of Public Assistance.
Do you provide SNAP benefits (formerly known as food stamps)?
No, you must apply for SNAP benefits at the Office of Public Assistance. Once you are eligible for SNAP benefits, you are referred to HRDC for the SNAP E&T Program.
Who is eligible to participate?
SNAP E&T is designed for SNAP recipients in Yellowstone and Big Horn County who are seeking employment.
What is required of me?
You are required to meet with your Client Advocate on a weekly basis and complete 20 hours of employability activities that have been agreed upon by you and your Case Manager.
Are there supportive services available?
Yes, on a limited basis. Supportive services are available for clients who are in compliance with the program. SNAP E&T Client Advocates can assist with transportation assistance, interview or work clothing, classes, and other expenses that are directly related to participation in SNAP E&T.
What will my Client Advocate provide?
You and your Client Advocate are a team. Together you will decide what obstacles are preventing you from becoming employed. We will provide you with referrals and support to help you overcome those obstacles. Your Client Advocate is aware of the resources in the community that would benefit you. The SNAP E&T Client Advocate is your ally, and truly cares about helping you succeed in becoming self sufficient.
How long can I be in the SNAP E&T program?
SNAP E&T services will be available to you, as long as you are in compliance with the program, until you achieve employment.
